Just like how global market is operating for sneakers, the resale culture in India has also grown in past few years, and specially in country like ours it makes more sense not only because of the hype but also due to the fact that we don’t really get a lot of major official releases in stores.
So unlike the global market, we in India specially for resellers, the market ain’t just for the hype but also for certain pairs that might be GR but just hard to cop at stores specially the money sizes.
